|Wow, I've gotten very good at Solo mode now. I just cleared the last 8 challenges in the ruins today without even getting frustrated. There was another one of those "guard the orb" challenges in a crazy level involving vanishing platforms, it was a very interesting challenge. The timed challenges in these stages were nothing... Pressing pause and taking the time to think about your next action makes these a lot easier to manage...|
And most of all, using the right costume for the level makes a huge difference. Sometimes you want the Energy Gear so you can spam your item against bosses, sometimes you want sword outfit so you can get through the kill rooms much more quickly... and sometimes you want other situational costumes. When I first started doing this, I was only using the Linebeck costume because i wanted materials, but now I have all the materials I need except for friendly tokens...
Yeah, once i'm done with the challenges, maybe I'll try doing Den of Trials online.
